While we were in NYC in April, I had a chance to visit famed Metro Textiles. While I was there, I finally met Ann of Gorgeous Things in person. She is an energetic lady with full of sewing ideas. It was really great to meet a fellow sewist.
Here are most of what I purchased at Mr. Kashi's store. Some of them are for my DDs but most of them are for myself.
The first project will be a wrap dress with the paisley print cotton eyelet. I bought some light weight cotton in fuchsia for lining the eyelet. The green light weight wool will be a jacket or a spring coat. The 'balloon' print is a silk and will be used as a lining for the wool.
I am plowing through my pile of sewing and pattern books to decide which one to make. I love this part of the project!
